MKR nb1500

I need a small waterproof solar panel and suitable battery to power an MKRNB 1500.
The project is designed to send average acceloromeer data 6 times a day.
Can you recommend a battery and solar panel combination and indicate how to wire it up please.
Thanks Greatly

@mahardie,

Take a look at the BQ24074 solar charge controller or the Solar LiPoly Charger guides we have. Unfortunatley, charging with solar requires several devices so this guides try to sum up the various options to keep your battery charging and you controller running.
